Brief Answer:
Following advice...

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

The elevation of hemoglobin is called polycythemia and is one of the most common sides effects of testosterone shots observed on 30% of patients.

In this case if i was your treating doctor would decrease the dose of testosterone to half the dose. If the increase of hemoglobin will be up to 50% of basal line you would stop taking testosterone.

Wish you health!
